When you buy a diamond, buy a

The mere suspicion that a diamond

St. Andrew's College Review 

Easter, 1020 

li is with joy that we are able to preface our second issue of the 
school year with congratulations to another championship team. The 
Hockey team in reaching the semi-finals of the Junior O.H.A. did all 

and more than was asked of it; the Review tenders its sincere con- 

We were all very sorry when, on returning after the Christmas 
holidays, we heard thai Mr. Church had accepted a position with the 
British-American Oil Company; although he is still very much with us 
as a house-master, his absence in the classroom and mi the hockey-rink 
has been keenly felt. Mr. Church first came to lis in tile early part 
of the War and returned in l c '19 after spending some time with the 
troops in England and France; while many of our readers will remem- 
ber him as the one who first initiated them into the mysteries of 
algebraic formulae and geometrical theorems, he will probably be mon 
familiar to other- as the coach and inspiration of their football, hocke) 
and cricket teams. In addition to his work with the First Football 
team during the last two seasons, Air. Church -tailed a tradition of 
successful .Middle School team-: Third football team- that went for 
years without a defeat; Midget and Bantam hocke) team- that "cleaned 
up" their groups; and cricket teams — well, perhaps we had better leave 
it at that! \t .no rate, th< Review would like to record its gratitudi 
to Mr. Church, who was, among other things, once its Editor, ami to 
wish him even success in In- new sphere of activity. 

I aptain J. 1'. Evans, who joined the staff this term, i- an ( >ld 
Etonian, and was also at Christ Church. Oxford; -Mice then he has 
spent many years in the Army and has travelled all over the world. The 
Review extend- to him a ver) cordial welcome. 

As usual, the lir-t signs of Spring have come to many of us a- a 
reminder that it is high time to settle down to the serious busine - o 
work, and we go about our daily round with an air of purpose that 
makes some of us almost unfamiliar. And so. since Editorially we 
have no furthi will conclude with this obvious remark, 

for this i- a school year when every moment of time i- full

G. X. T. W. 

Hi. Review offered two prizes, senior and junior, for the best 

on of our visit to the Art Gallery, and we print the successful 
essays below. 

Everyone in the school, masters included, visited the Art Gallery, 
irrespective of their artistic tastes. Many, of course, limited their 
sojourn to walking in one door and out the other. Some because they 
were, perhaps, getting something for nothing, remained to enjoy the 
pleasure and beaut) afforded by the Grange. Others still, went the 

,,ind- of the room-, simply because they had not the courage to 
take the chance of walking out. being caught, and punished', according 
to the terms of the dreadful proclamation issued a few days previously. 
Then lastly, there was that small, distinguished group who, partly 
because they did not wisli to offend anyone by not accepting the 
privilege extended to them, and partly out of plain curiosity, stretched 
their imaginations a trifle and soon convinced even themselves that they 
knew a great deal concerning oil paintings. 

Lei us, however, begin our visit properly. We enter the revolving 

. ng on Dundas Street with something of a little thrill, and if we 
have been fortunate in being blessed with a memory, hand our private 
calling end- to tin- Prefects, with a feeling of having' outwitted them 
for once. Desiring to spend the afternoon in some degree of comfort. 
W e plaj valet to ourselves and check our coats and hats in a small room. 
provided for that purpose, but in a somewhat miniature style. 
Emerging from the crowd in the check-room we buy a catalogue and 
a general survey of our surroundings. There are six galleries 
suitable for the exhibition of paintings, which surround a .ureal central 


court, known as the Sir Edmund Walker court, and which is to be 
devoted to sculpture only. < >n the upper floor is a long rectangular 
gallery taken up entirely with prints. 

For some little time we wandered around at leisure, but at length 
everyone gathered in the Wesl Rotunda, where Dr. Macdonald in- 
troduced to n- our guide-to-be, Air. Arthur Lismer, who. previous to 
beginning our tour of inspection, explained to us that before one could 
appreciate or criticize a picture, it was necessary for one to know some- 
thing of the artist, his interest in life, his object in painting the picture. 
and what he wishes to conve} to us by it; also one should know a 
little about the lighting, the lines, the colouring, and the proportion and 
centn of interest, and finally, the nationality of the artist and during 
what century he lived. 

In the Western gallery and rotunda, the older masters are in the 
majority, hence the pictures are 'largely portraits. Of these, the two 
which naturally strike the eye of even the most inartistic soul are, 
"A Gentleman", by Franz Hall, and a portraiture of "Richard Barry 
Fttdger", by Sir William Orpen. There is something in these two 
pictures by which your attention is unconsciously attracted and held, so 
that you would stand gazing at them for hours; but our guide desires 
otherwise, and hence we find ourselves in the French room on the 
Eastern side. Here the light, vivid, fantastic paintings of the French 
strike a singular contrast with the solid, heavy, comforting works of the 
old Dutch and Italian masters. 

The American and Canadian artists occupy the Southern galleries. 
this at a -lance. For the subjects chosen by the 
I in no other lands outside of the United States 
and Canada. The picture of "Celebra Cut", the smallness of the engines. 
with their smoke going directly sky-ward, and the hustling men com- 
pared with the solid hugeness of the mountain through which they are 
cutting, is typical of the enterprising energy of the American, hurrying 
to do great things in as little time as possible. I >nl\ in Canada could one 
receive the inspiration to place on canvas such paintings as "The 
Walker in the Snow'' by Blair Bruce, "Pine Maud" and a "Jack Pine" 
!,-. ["om Thompson. In these last two. with their firml) set-up trees 
yielding their limbs in free, graceful movements t" the whims of the wild, 
tempestuous wind, one is able to see the spirit of UnitedneSS against 
other nations, with, a love of freedom and self-expression inborn in the 
Canadian peopl<

(if us would be able to understand and appreciate the true value of 


paintings, and especially those of Canadian artists. Now our wandei - - 
ings bring us to the print room i ceedingl interesting nol onl) 
which is said to be the spice of life, 
I, in because of the realh ancient age of some of the prints. Thus 
our visit to the Art Gallery came to a close. Vet there arc few who 
will not retain some treasured bit of remembrance from that day. 


What do you know about Art? Formerly most of us were 
ignorant about some of the finest points in a picture, but since our visit 
to the Toronto Art Gallery we have been greatly enlightened. 

It was announced in Chapel a few days before the visit that we 
were to go to the \ rt Gallery in busses. At last the day arrived, and 
we boarded buses and in half an hour arrived at our destination. 
Mr. Lismer had very kindly consented to tell us about the pictures. He 
took us i" the room given 1>> Mr. and Mrs. Fudger. The pictures that 
impressed mi most were the "Standard Bearer" and a picture of a 
Dutch river scene on a bright day. The last named contained some 
racing boat- and a big sailing boat. The "Standard Bearer" was a tine 
if a Scotchman holding his standard by him. We then went to 
a room containing French paintings. Some of these were very beautiful 
but none of them appeared to me to lie as good a- those we had seen at- 
first. Mr. Lismer then escorted us to another part of the Gallery, in 
which were the pictures of Maurice and Thompson, the two great 
Canadian painters. Our guide told us several interesting facts about 
these men and explained to us the beauty in their pictures. We were 
then left to wander about at our leisure. After half an hour most of 
US decided we had learned enough about arti>ts and paintings for one 
day SO we left the Gallery and returned to School.

I awoke Sunday morning to find the ground covered In a thick layer 
of that dry, powder) snow which seems to add an imaginary crispness to 
the penetrating cold of zero weather. The only place of warmth in all 
my barren little room was under the none too plentiful covers of my 
iron bed. This bed was hard and springless, but its warmth meant 
heaven Eoi me that cold January morning. 

I la) there druglessly comfortable for once in my life, and un- 
troubled by that wracking COUgh. In a lazy, listless manner 1 reviewed 
the sad events which led up to my present hopeless position. 

Born a month after the death of, my poor, artist father, I came into 
an atmosphere of nothing hut sorrow, sickness and poverty. Through 
all this the dauntless spirit of ray mother shone like the blessed ray of 
lighl on a dun-eon floor. 1 remember her hut faintly, she dying when 
I was at the early age of six. 

1 now realize that from her 1 received everything which became 
holy, good and beautiful in my saddened and restricted life. Not alone 
from my father's temperamental nature did 1 inherit the overpowering 
love for all, things beautiful which I now possess. My mother's golden 
heart beat full of the love of God's work and creatures. 

She and I were left alone in our only inheritance, a small. dingy 
room in an east-side tenement house. After six years of scraping 
together enough for two, her gallant heart hurst under the colossal 
strain. 1 found her at the foot of the stairs and there 1 sustained the 
greatest sorrow of a sad life. 

I managed to live through ten years of an absolute Hell, and finally 
that dread disease overtook me. 1 had Tuberculosis! From there I 
went down and down. 1 had saved quite a sum of money, and now took 
to drinking at night, to still the feverish imagination which kept me 
from sleep. From there was hut a step to the use of drugs, and every 
nighl after a day of labour and of spasmodic, terrible coughing. I would 
doze off into the realms of the poppy. 

The dreams which came to me in those long sleeps, come only to one 
of the highest type of imagination. They were a very torture of 
blinding beauty, of swirling, twisting figures, ever changing, ever 
fantastic, each picture differing from the other in every detail. 

Once, after sleeping lor two days, 1 lost the job to gain which 1 
had slaved those ten years. M) drug-weakened condition grew 
steadily worse. I was confined to my bed continuously. The popp) 
I, rin- my only relief. 1 soon became its slave, 1 loved it. 


1 worshipped it. — it was my God, the only god who had given me any 
other than pain and sorrow. 

Thus L found myself that Sunday morning. The soft falling snow 
and the subdued murmur of traffic which reached me from the bus) 
streets below soon lulled me into a light and peaceful doze. I had been 
unable to procure drugs for the last two days, from lack of money, and 
consequently last night had been a very torture of fear and longing. In 
my terrified tossings 1 had crashed my head against the iron cross-bar 
of the bed, and was -wept into my first drugless unconsciousness of 
week-. \nd now. the following morning 1 lay in a state of peaceful 
happiness and content. 

\s full consciousness returned I tried to question, to determine 
whence this new-found peace. My fleeing, restless thoughts could light on 
nothing certain, tangible or true, and deeper thinking only left me more 
perplexed, dazed and nearer to my erstwhile, abhorrent self. 

From looking on my former cursed and awful habits 1 stared out of 
the opened window on the falling snow. I saw it. and 1 blessed, within 
my aching heart, the softness and the peace, which slowly eddied, sank 
and passed below the sill. I unconsciously thanked a beneticient nature 
which rendered man the light of day and thus revealed to him in every 
detail the beauty of multitudinous creations. 

Then straightway attendant on the thought, like a sign from I leaven 
dropping, the church bell from St. Amies peeling forth the call to 
morning worship, echoed from wall to wall within my narrow chamber. 
Louder still and louder the ringing of that bell crept in and printed on 
my barren soul it- message. 

All my questions answered, all my fancies stilled, all my being tilled 
with knowledge of the Truth and of my Saviour, i slept, and still in 
dreams, I seemed to hear the faint, sweet music of a till} lull. 1 saw 
again my dirty battered window, but now 'twas clean and white as each 
slow-descending flake. My dream seemed centred on that window 
which now was bathed in light of bright and phosphorescent hue. A 
vision poised upon the sill, ethereal, ghostly, in a -own of shimmering 
white, which radiated round about, a light as holy and as bright as ever 
man in dream lands realm could view and keep his sight. The face 
enshrined in dark-brown locks, was kindly, handsome and a trifle sad. 
. of lightest blue, scintillated, glowed, and changed and ever 
showed a different phase or depth to the loving soul within. My 
imagination's eye was held by the hope, the love-, the -lotions future 
promised in those burning orbs. 

But as I gazed the picture changed; the eyes became a pathway, 


straighl and narrow, toward which a finger, Service, \

Just as the Armistice ended the Great War. so on < Ictober the fifteenth, 
epoch-making treaties were adopted at Locarno designed to render im- 
possible any re-opening of that Great War. Germany and the Allied 
powers approved the text of a security pact outlawing war. 

When word of the agreement spread from mouth to mouth like some 
wireless flash, this peaceful spot, nestling at the lakeside beneath 
towering mountains, seemed to pulsate with the thrill of countli -- 
multitude- dwelling throughout the world. The British Secretar) of 
Foreign Affairs emphasized that no delegation had triumphed n\w 
another in the negotiations. The idea launched was that there would 
emerge for Europe not a peace imposed, but a peace consented to 
by all. 

The first article of the Pact states: "All contracting parties collectively 
and severally guarantee the inviolability of the frontier of Germany and 
Belgium, between Germany and Belgium and between Germany and 
France, and the observance of the stipulation of the Treaty of Versailles 
concerning the demilitarized zones". This clause is an overreaching 
provision imposfng absolute obligaton on each of the contractng parties. 
1 he subsequent article- (in parti specify the method of carrying oul 
tlie understanding, but leave the general guarantee unimpaired. 

According to the second article Germany, France, and Belgium agree 
to make a breach of tin stipulations regarding the demilitarized zone. 
[f on< "i these countries make- a complaint against another to the 
League of Nations, and the complaint is upheld by the League, .,11 
parties agree t" help the complainant. If the claim i- not upheld bj 
the League the matter must be dropped. In this clause there is 
allowance made fur legitimate warfare, such a- self-defense. 

If war is to be done away with alternatives musl he provided. The 
third article of the pact provide- these alternative-. Disputes are to be 
handled h\ tribunals entitled to give a decision, their decision being 
binding on both parties. 

Disputes arising from a clash of political interests, or whi 
country, distinctly within its right-, harm- another, go to a conciliator) 
jion. It on< power finds the decision of the commission in- 
acceptable, the matter i- brought before the League of Nations, whose 
i i- absolutel) final. 
According to article four, if one of the guarantee powers is satisfied 
that the pact has been broken, it ma\ act at once. But in due cours<

tin- League of Nations will look into the matter, and all state- will

In article five it is pointed cut that in case of 
Lgue must decide what course is to he la 
tracting parties make any move. If the break i< 
the guarantee power- musl attack at once. 

Article six emphasizes the fact that the Locan 
validate am special rights or privileges held 1>\ 
Treaty of Versailles. 

The se\enth article makes clear that the pact is not to undermine in 
the slightest the control of power, the authority, or the position of the 
I eague of Nations. 

Article eight deals with the duration of the pact. 1 

cannot he indefinite. As soon as the powers are satisfid

In article nine we find that no obligations are placed on the British 
Dominions, unless the government of a Dominion wishes to accept these 

Article ten is the provision that the pact does not go into force until 
( iermany enters the 1 .eague of Nations. 

The reduction of the armament burdens of Europe looms as one 
of the possible sequences of the pact. It will remain for the individual 
nation- under wise statesmanship to make the Locarno Convention the 
beginning of a new era in world policies, an era in which the develop- 
ment of mutual confidence, and the practice of the sound doctrine of 
the general good to mankind will he regarded as the only real 
foundation on which the well-being, not only of the world at large, but 
of the commonwealths, can securely rest. In an effort to reach this 
atmosphere of international good-will, the governments have each at 
hand, the League of Nations, an organization that ought to prove of 
inestimable value. With Germany a member of the Geneva organization, 
everj power on the European continent, with the exception of Russia, 
will be pledged to submit disagreements with other nations to its 
decisions, and through the strength it will exercise in directing com- 
of countries against attempts at aggression, it will he enabled 
it leasl to check military ambition and make arbitration instead of war 
the rule for the future. 

I ►ni thing seems apparent as a result of the agreement arrived at : 

the world for a long time will he undisturbed by provocative policies on 

the part of militant governments, by sabre-rattling attitudes of am- 

rulers. It ha- been heard for perhaps the last time, or at least 


i.ii generations, of metaphorical figures in shining armour read) to 
challenge the world to combat. 

A genuine hope will inspire the nations that at last the warrior will 
divest himself of In- weapons of offense to learn the arts of peace and 
that the sword will in reality be turned into a plowshare.

I'he long winter term through which we are now passing is so our 
masters tell us, and of course they know — the best time of year for 
putting in man) useful hours of stud) in preparation for the dread 
matriculation, which they gleefully inform us is only so main- hours, 
minutes, and seconds away from us. These calculations are based on 
the number of periods of their favourite subject and should never be 
■ iously. 

Now making due allowance for any of those little exaggerations thai 
"in- masters are so fond of there must be some truth in this statement 
that the winter term is the best time to study, and if there is, of course, 
we must study. That is tlie only way to succeed in life, doing the 
right thing at the right time. 

And so suppose that one evening half an hour before the end of 
Stud) we find ourselves with all our excuses prepared for the next day 
md no available magazine to read. This is clearly the time for a little 
judicious review of our weak points — of some of them, at any rate — 
which is going to help us so much in June. Let us consider the best 
wa\ to set about it. 

First let us decide what particular part of our work we wish to 
review it may be French verbs, or Algebraic formulae, or Esperanto- 
then search for the text-book on that subject, and having looked through 
the whole pile three times, we will probably remember that we have lent 
it to that day-boy, Watsisname, who is going to bring it hack in the 
morning. We select another hook at random, find the page that looks 
esl and glare at it fixedly for live minutes, bang it down and lose 
the place, then try another page, glare for ten minutes, and finally throw 
the book on the floor and say unkind things about it. We then take 
another book and repeat the performance. \fter two or three hooks 
have been ruined in this manner study will he at an end. A half hour of 
good solid work like this will do us a world of -nod in |une.

It was one of those aristocratic gatherings of society's elite, an 
intellectual feast presented by artists of long-established reputation. 
The press-agents, it is true, were crowded together in their shabby box, 
but some of them had even donned stiff collars and accordingly did not 
dampen the atmosphere a il had been forecasted. 

The scene was the ( Ipera House of Vienna. The grand tier crowded 
with a brilliant audience. 

Two years previous to the time at which the story occurs the entire 
premises had been employed as a "rendez-vous" for mobs of licentious 
rioters. Laundrj shops had hem installed in the "Royal box", hut with 
months of patience the '•Austrian Guard" had subdued the rebellions 
and restored the auditorium to it- former magnificence. 

The curtain had descended upon the fourth act of Faust. M. the 
i onductor, had been generously applauded and the majority oi the 
audience had streamed out into "The Grand Hall". 

The eminent Dr. and Mrs. VanVlprigen remain in their -eats and 
are conversing with their very dear friends. Baron and Baroness Schultz. 
Mi, Baroness is one of those exotic creatures, who either finds things 
simply marvellous or perfectly vile. She i- coylj supping a cup of 
coffee with her little finger straining its ligament so that Mr-. Vlorigan 
may catch hut a glimpse of her new emeralds. "Good heavens! hut 

these people are -tupid war profiteers undoubtedly", she 

soliloquized thoughtfully to herself and then with bubbling affection to 
her companion, "Mj dear, you simply must come; everyone will he there 
and it'- all so dead without you. in fact I'm almost bored to distraction 
this winter: everything so quiet after the war", and -he turn- about SO 
that her friend may get „iore than a glimpse of her new ear rings as 
they -wish by. "Stingy old lady", ponders her companion; "they must 
have been given to her, she'd never buy them herself, that's certain". 
Then in a soft, soothing enquiry, "1 didn't see you at the hall last 
evening, cherie", complimenting herself that -he ha- remembered some 
of Iter school-girl French. "Why. no!" replies her friend languidly, 
"One cannot attend all the social function-", and -he hum- a portion of 
the la-t act, showing that -he ha- consulted her Victrola \cr> wisel) 
before leaving home and also retorting to her neighbour's query in a 
most aggravating "I-only-choose-the-best" manner. Conversation is 
dragging, thej are both extremely gratified when the orchestra returns 
and strike the opening chords to the la-t scene, . . . thus the) soon pari 


. . such delicious old fools deepl) steeped in the wiles of artificiality. 
Bui this is but one phase of intelligence amongst the brilliant assembly. 
In the second boxes are the VanHorn's. '•Absolutely charming people", 
whispers Mrs. Smith, an American "breaker-into-society", who points 
coquettishly with her fan towards their gilded box. "The old man looks 
as if he'd much rather be in a stable", grumbles her husband, who wishes 
he had gone to the races himself. "( )h. my dear, you are so realistic". 

"But truthful", adds her husband, brutally kicking the seat in front. 
"Bui Manon. say, have you noticed the old swell in 38?" But even 
Mrs. Smith, who is generally wide-awake at all points of gossip, has let 
her gaze wander towards the rising curtain. 

The "swell' in loge number thirty-eight is truly of the aristocratic 
type in countenance, whilst he wears a high frock-coat and stiff shirt 
decorated with the flashing silken band of a Vice-Consul, lie bears the 
-tamp of tine breeding; there is something sadly forlorn, however, 
about hi- shabby suit, the wrinkled vest and wistful gaze. As he stares 
out into tin' darkened auditorium what are his thoughts? As he broods 
moodily with bead in band his misty gaze does not concern the 
picturesque setting to act live. The majesty in the concluding arias, — 
these are all lost, muddled, vaguely confused. It was all so different 
before, — before what? Before that horrible period of conflict, that 
period which turned the world from its peaceful course into a deep mire 
of chaos and regeneration. 

The opera is concluded, blowers are graciously bestowed on the 
fair Marguerite. The Baroness, the Dukes and even the lowly Smiths are 
hobnobbing in the "Great Hall" on their way to the street. The Vice- 
Consul stares vacantly upon the great throng of profiteers — the get-rich- 
quicks, all those people who had been regarded as important only in the 
realm of finance and commerce. Now they swarmed everywhere, 
inundating society's ranks and the state banks with their sparkling gold. 
Money not only talked, it ROARED. The Vice-Consul leaned weakly 
against the faded plush of the curtains in his loge. He fancied he could 
almost smell the soap-suds in the neighbouring "Royal box". Soon he 
was awakened from his siesta 1>\ a -harp poke from the pert young 
Fraulein at the door; "Excuse me, but Mr. Turin is a' bit tardy; it's 
already long after ten: I must sweep this place out: here's your 'top- 
knot'.' and she tossed him his shabby hat with a curt laugh. "What did 
this all mean?" In- wondered, quite failing to keep up with the whirl of 
modern ways. Why in the "ninetys" .1 pfenig were enough to keep 
such a girl contented and at least respectful for an entire season, but 
no ' ' and be jammed his hat upon hi- head and wandered out to the 
Mm 1. m the dm of traffic and general bustle he heard a sharp 


thin voice behind him. "Yes, that's old Torin, I do believe, what a blue 
thin flame he is". "As thin as a giraffe", broke in a young girl, sup- 
pressing a gigle. "A bit passe, wouldn't you say. mother?" and they 
hurried away towards their waiting ear. The evening breeze ruffled the 
old man's hair and swept through the thin cloth of his coat. "Un pen 
passe" they had said, what did they mean? — ah. he knew only too well — 
be bad been fighting against it tor so long and at last the arrow had 
been shot and it had struck hard. They bad probably all EorgOtten 
llerr Yon Torin. Vice-Consul to Russia. He was but a flimsy cob-web 
in the tickle structure of society. 

The rain beats sharply on the leaded window-panes; the streets are 
well-nigh deserted and shimmer in the glare of the sickly gas jets. A 
few working men or drunks shuffle by him as St. Peter's chimes the 
hour of twelve. He at last approaches his tenement. The ball is but 
dimly lit and he stumbles upstairs in the darkness. Fran Kerring. his 
landlady, bids him a dismal "Good-night" from below, as she closes the 
house-door with a crash, wondering why such absent-minded old men are 
allowed to live, then returns to her poor husband, complaining in her 
cracked monotonous voice till early in the morning. 

The quarters are struck and Von Torin timidly opens the lattice in 
the room he calls his own. Vague shadows sweep across the dirty wall; 
it is so cold and damp that Midden gusts of wind sift in through the 
rotten plaster and make the candle flicker, turn to a thin blue flame and 
finally be replaced by a smouldering wick. A few moments later the 
hall light is snuffed and all is quiet, so quiet and still. As Von Torin 
quietly sinks to his couch the Russian Vice-Consul is despisedly for- 
gotten, the pomp- of yesterday have indeed vanished and still the phrase 
rings in bis ears so tauntingly. SO deep, so cruel. "He is a little passe, 
mother". The laugh of scorn that accompanied it bit deeply into his 
very soul. The dense fog is fading from his sight and strange beautiful 
lights swirl caressingly above his head. The rain patters monotonously 
on the pane. 

CROWE, Lower Sixth. 


Nov everyone at some time or other in their life, has been hunting, 

for lions, tigers and similar gentle creatures in the animal 

kingdom, or perhaps the timid rabbit and the wily fox, but few have 

experienced the thrill of a lifetime, the hair-raisin-, hi d-curdling 

incidents and the hardship and danger which befall those who hunt the 
bow legged dew wot m 

In the spring of the year 1901 a rumour was abroad that a farmer 
living in the Wilds of Moore Park, while driving his cattle through the 
bush, had seen a huge snake-like creature devour one of hi- herd in one 
gulp. The reptile, if it was such, was covered with long red and white 
fur resembling a barber's pole, by its spiral red and white stripes, and 
with eyes the size of saucers, one pink and the other a bright purple, 
which slid in and out of a heavily armoured head. 

This description fitted exactly that of an animal Ion- extinct and the 
habits'of which my friend Jack and I had been studying, so needless to 
say we set out in quest of this creature. Knowing its habits and the 
methods of capturing it. we equipped ourselves with an ostrich feather, 
a butterfly net. a small quantity of salt and one saxophone. 

When we arrived in the vicinity in which the dew worm had been 
seen, we betook ourselves into the branches of two trees and settled 

We began to lure our quarry into our hands by first giving three 
school yells at intervals, and then playing "Where's My Sweetie Hiding", 
on the. Sax. with the chorus of "It Ainta Gonna Rain No More", which 
has proved to he the greatest factor in attracting the dew worms, and 
having finished our ceremonies we awaited our prev. 

Soon drawn to the place by the soothing sounds, the worm came 
gliding forth. Now was the time for action; signalling Jack to play 
again to attract its attention, I slid down the tree to a spot just behind 
the dew worm; then, crawling on my hands and knees 1 drew closer and 
quickly sprinkled some salt on its tail, which immediately became 
paralyzed. Next I drew out my ostrich feather and creeping near 
began to tickle its chin so vigorously that the creature hurst into guffaws 
oi laughter. 

While peals of laughter ran- through the forest, the worm, weak and 
exhausted from its merriment, rolled over, quite helpless. We fixed a 
ring in its nose before it had recovered, and led it triumphantly home. 

on in the same year we caught another but much more 
valuable worm, valuable because of its knock-knees as well as how- 



leys and iis bright pink eves. The species with the pink eyes and 
marcelled chin-whiskers are the more valuable. In these days of 
curling-tongs, however, it is very hard to detect whether this kind is a 
counterfeit, a- the poachers capture the worms and drop red ink into 
their eyes with an eye-dropper and with the aid of a pair of curling- 
tongs transform them into more valuable looking specimens. 

There is still another species which dwells in the inland lakes or 
seas, and ma) he caught on a very warm day in the mid-summer if you 
procure a large auger and go to a part of the lakeshore shaded 
with over-hanging trees and bore a large hole in the water, and drop 
in a baited line. In a few moments you will notice a heavy swirling in 
the depths and then with a dash the dew worm charges for the bait and 
immediate!) places itself outside the bait and two or three yards of line. 
but in doing so is caught neatly in the hole you have just made. 
Making sure that your prey has expired you may climb down and bear 
away your prize. 

One of the most interesting of its kind is the worm which inhabits 
the hilly regions and has developed four spindl) legs, the two on the 
right side being shorter than those on the left, enabling it to pour itself 
over the hills or mounds without falling over, and also when going 
around curves at terrific speeds it ignores banked turns, as it is able to 
lean over without fear of tipping. 

Of all the different kinds, only the water species still exists, and 
although rarely seen you max- read occasionally of the appearance of n 
•iranv sea-serpent in some inland sea. but few know the truth of this 
queer and prehistoric creature.

i »ne of the most remarkable events in the history of the musical 
world, has been the growth of the Tenor Banjo. Although little more 
than ten years old, it lias developed into a husky youngster, growing 
bigger and stronger with such rapidity that its popularity seems insured 
for all time, because il has reached a stage which must be considered 
more than a fad: it has become a permanent fixture. 

I he amazing response of musicians to its usefulness is in direct 
contrast to their former indifferent attitude towards other banjo 
instruments. Violinists, pianists, cornetists, cello players and various 
members ol the every-day orchestra have succumbed to the charm of 
thi renor Banjo. In the dance halls it is recognized as a necessity, in 
and cabaret it- drawing power is unequalled, and in the home 
ii sets the young people's toes wiggling, and makes the old man smile 
11 get his business troubles. 

Although new in the manner of work it does, the tenor's origin is of 
noble lineage, for it is really a banjo tuned like a viola, the instrument 
that takes the tenor part in a violin orchestra. It might, in fact, be 
quite properly called a Viola Banjo. The left-hand fingering resembles 
viola methods, hut the right-hand, using a pock or. to give it the musical 
term, plectrum, instead of a how, gives the instrument that characteristic 
banjo tone. In this lies the cause of the Tenor Banjo's power and in- 
fluence in creating popularity. The masses have long demanded a tone 
which, while being musical and rhythmical, possesses a snap and twang 
that keeps abreast of this speedy age. They got it in the tenor, and 
immediately took hold of it for their own use as a safe way to give 
stability to their enthusiasm. 

lint there are additional reasons for the tenor's quick jump into 
prominence. It is easy to play, it may he used as a melodic or harmonic 
instrument; it adjusts itself to the score of the violin, viola or violin- 
cello and in a pinch can deliver a good part from a piano score. An 
explanation of this extraordinary range can he traced to the fact that 
its music is written in the treble clef. 

for solo work the Tenor Banjo ha- man} good point- which appeal 
t<. the fastidious musician, quite a number of expert performers using 
it for the stage and conceit platform. 

In the orchestra il ha- become more firmly established, not only as 

an instrument fur playing chords, hut also for playing leading parts 

along with the violin. for the young student who wishes to stud} 

rid Income a player quickly, then i- scarcely any other instrument 

that will hold hi- attention better than the Tenor Banjo. 



Everywhere in this world there are domesticated dogs, but few ever 
receive the opportunity to show their masters or mistresses the genuine 
faithfulness that is evident in every canine creature. 

The most convincing way to prove a dog's trustworthiness is bj 
relating a true incident. Therefore. I am going to narrate to you a 
true account, dealing with a black and white mongrel that was lead-do,^ 
on a mail team plying between Sault Ste. Marie and Burke's Head- 
quarters. It was this dog that thrilled the north country with its 
phenominal running, hack in 1886. 

For four long hour-. Whoop and Driver had been guiding his team 
over the regular trail. A good frost the night before had formed a 
crust on the snow and consequently the mocassined feet of the dogs 
sped phantom-like acro>s the white open spaces. 

At exactly four o'clock he drew hi- team to a standstill on Big i'.a> 
Point. Whoop and Driver looked out over the twenty-eight mile- of 
frozen water that lay between him and his destination. Providing he 
left the trail and took the ice he could cover the remaining miles in a 
little over three hours, although, Watch, hi- first dog, had coaxed the 
others over the last two hundred mile- with no little exertion to himself. 

Would he take the chance? 

It was quite evident that a storm was gathering, however, he thought 
he would he able to reach land before the tempest began. Stroking 
Watch with buck-skin clad hand he asked. "Can we make- it pard?" A 
>witch of the dog's tail was answer enough for the lad who knew dogs. 
He inspected the mail -trap-; took the dog's -hoe- off. for they do not 
need them on clean ice. before taking hi- Stand at the rear of the sled. 
Then, as if speaking to one of human intelligence, he said. "Make 'em 
step boy!" They had not been out an hour when the storm commenced, 
with violent hurst- of rage the uncontrolable wind swept across the ice- 
covered hay in merciless fury, carrying with it a blinding -now. 

Though, unlike him. Whoop and Driver, lost all sense of direction 
for nearly an hour he allowed Watch to battle on into the driving 
wind, unguided. All in a moment he perceived u to be becoming 
stifling cold. It was penetrating hi- thick clothing; he felt he h 
In- strength. Stepping off the -I'd in order to run and warm : 
he stumbled and fell. Striking hi- head on the wind-swept ice. he was 
rendered unconscious. Watch went on. quite unaware of tin 
until glancing hack, he found hi- master was nowhere to be 5i 


waited for a considerable time, then turning the train about, he re- 
traced his steps in the still form of his owner. 

He licked the partly uncovered car of the man. until one of Whoop 
and Driver's hands found its wa) to the dog's warm pelt. Partly dazed, 
he scrambled to his knee-, but finding himself entirely too weak to gain 
his feet, he crawled to the sleigh and pulled himself onto the mail. 
With considerable trouble he managed to draw his bear-robe about him. 
the mail-man struggled against the thick veil of unconsciousness 
that was enveloping his chilled body. A moment later he lay still. 

It was in such a condition that his frozen, nearly lifeless body was 
found next morning by the Factor in headquarters. 

Watch, ,-izing up the situation, had followed their scent back to 
Big Ba) Point, and thence along the old shore trail, he knew so well, 
into Burke's Post. 

Now, such a deed as this performed by man would command 
universal attention, and the one involved would, no doubt, receive a 
medal for heroism. But, where a mere dog is a man's deliverer, it is 
taken as an everyday occurrence, except in motion pictures. 

Concluding, I want to say that it is widely known that no pet nor 
friend is as faithful as a dog. He is the most unselfish earthly com- 
panion in love and loyalty that man has ever known. But. animal-like, 
will cat the last traces of food from a starving master. Excepting this 
one failing a dog is a man's truest friend.

We arc again able to look back upon a highlj successful season 
For the second year in succession we reached the semi-finals of the 
O.H.A. with a team much younger and lighter than the average junior 
team. Credit for their achievement should go in the first place to our 
old boy' coach, Harry Watson, and to him the heartfell thank- of the 
team and the whole School go out: we should also like to congratulate 
him upon his coaching of the Parkdale teams to an equally advanced 
stage of the < ).H.A. race. 

A full account of all the < ).H.A. games will be found below, but the 
season might be briefly reviewed as follows. 

Iii the S.P.A. series we were drawn against the strong Toronto 
Canoe Club team and were eliminated by a score of 3 — 2; however, the 
game showed that we again had ver\ promising material and all the 
players gave a good account of themselves. In the Prep. School Croup 
IT.C.C. seemed to be the strongest on paper, but they did not quite come 
up to expectations and the real Struggle Came between St. 
College and ourselves; we lost our first game to them, and this made 
our eventual victory the more creditable, in the pla) of] games we 
found ( ishawa. our first opponents, fairly easy, but Newmarket were

Callighen: although we did have bad luck in the game at Owen

agree that the better team won. We also played a gam

The first team won their opening game in the Prep. School Group 
when they defeated (J.C.C. 3—2. The game was as close as the score 
with victory for either side in doubt until the final bell. The 
combination was fairly good but over-anxiety on both trams robbed 
them hi" many opportunities to score. Seagram was the star of the game. 
Mis two goals in the second period were well earned, both going into 
the corner of the net. Little, in goal for U.C.C., played a great game.

period was not through any fault of his as it went clean through the

nol been on the ice ten minutes before S.M.C. scored three goals in 
quick succession. I >ur tram could not do anything and before the 
nded St. Mike's added two more to make a grand total of seven. 
In the last period we improved a little, and if nothing else we kept them 
from scoring. The fast pace began to tell and the game slowed up

before the game ended, making the final score 7 — 3.

S.A.C. vs. IM S 

Notwithstanding the defeat that we suffered at the hands of St. 
.Michael's, the team came right hack and showed the Bloor Street 
youngsters that we meant business b) defeating them (> — 1. This put 
them out of the running for the group title. U.T.S. have been most 
unfortunate this year in the fact that every team that they have been so 
unlucky to have met have scored three goals against them before they 
realized what they were out there for. Their ineffectiveness in the 
early part of the contests wrecked their chances, even if they did play 
cleverly after handicapping themselves. By this win we moved to 
second place, and if the team play the same brand of hockey in their 
remaining games the) won't find much difficulty in winning the group. 
Clean play dominated an interesting struggle. The team had speed to 
bin n. and they skated away from their opponents on mam exciting goal- 
getting expeditions. 

I lad the U.T.S. defence, however, shown strength the score would 
have been closer. Mercer was the best man on the ice. He seemed 
to glide away from the checkers without undue effort. Mercer, how- 
recei i ! good support from his team-mates on the front line. 
Miller, hovering and Careless being prominent. Whitehead and Carrick 
teamed well on the defence, both of them doing some great checking, 
while Whitehead's rushes were always dangerous. The first period was 
an unlucky one for U.T.S, S.A.C. running in three goals before ten 
minutes had elapsed. After that the) settle,! down, and led by Captain 
Joe Cook, the) played much better hockey. In the second period they 


managed to -core on a neat bit of combination, while St. Andrew's 
increased their lead to five. The last twenty minutes were fast and 
furious, with U.T.S. trying to get back some of their lost prestige; but 
hej would, they could not get past Hunnisett. Just before the 
bell ran- for the end Mercer added another, making our total six. 

Line-up :

S.A.C. vs. U.C.C. 
After our first game with Upper Canada, which we won by onh 
it looked as if we would have to be at our best to defeat 
them a second time. Their team had improved a .ureal deal, and with 
the addition of Bagshaw, an interesting game was anticipated. V\v 
game was fast and clean, with ver) few penalties being imposed. The 
first period was a repetition of the last one. neither tram SCOrin 
gram and the rest of his puck-chasers found it hard to get past the 
S.A.C. defence, and they ended up by shooting from outside. However, 
in the second period Seagram -cored the first goal on a lone effort. The 
puck was travelling low and fast. Not many goalkeepers could have 
Stopped it. < >ur team demonstrated their skill of the noble game b\ 
tying the count a few minutes after on a pas- from Mercer to l ovei 
ing. Then the boys began to open up, and the forward- rained shot 
after shot on the U.C.C. net. Little showed that he was right on the 
job In Stopping then. all. The last period was full of ex. 
because Carrick scored his first goal in O.H.A. hockey, and 

ised to see him do it against our old rival-. The other scorer 
were Lovering, Whitehead and Careless, the former scoring two. 
Stewart put U.C.C. in the lead on a shot from outside tl 
S.A.C. scored right after on a shot from Lovering's stick, making it two 
all. S.A.C. kept up their relentless attack, and by well engineered plays 
they added three more to their total. 

Seagram was again outstanding for U.C.C, his bullet-like -hot 
threatening our goal tune after time. Stewart and Dohertj also played 
well for them. 

Lovering, Whitehead and Careless were the feature p 
game. The three skated at top speed, and were equallj effective on the 
attack and on the defence. 

l.'ne-up: The same a- la-t time. 

Referee- Connie SmUhe. 


S. \.C. vs. S.M.C. 

St. Michael's College Juniors were heavy favourites to repeat their 
victor) over us, as in our last encounter the) handed us a 7 -3 defeat. 
However, after the battle was over, opinion changed, and we were 
favoured to win the group championship. The team out-skated and 
out-played the Joseph Street youngsters by their clever stick- 
handling and combination. The previous day Saint Michael's had 
played U.T.S. to a ninety minute tie, and they plainly showed the effects 
of this setback. There can be no doubt left in the minds of the 
spectators as to which is the better team, for S.A.C. won on their 
merits. I'hc\ came hack to defeat a team that had once beaten them by 
a large score, and that alone is enough to indicate that we showed more 
spirit. Mercer, Miller and Whitehead did exceptionally tine work. 
Mercer's poke-check was working to perfection, and time and again he 
broke up the S.M.C. rushes at mid-ice. Miller on right wing skated 
mik-. his back-checking being very effective. Irvine, Poupore and 
Dunning were their best performers. I'oupore tried hard to put his 
team in the lead, hut in Mercer he found a hard man to pass. Not 
much can he said about the game. It was 2 to 1 at the end of the 
(irsl intermission and 4 to 1 at the end of the second. This plainly 
showed that S.A.C. were far superior and earned the victory. The good 
work of Moran in goal kept us from scoring more than one goal in the 
lasl session. I'oupore counted for St. Mike's. 

The line-up is the same as in the last game. 

S.A.C. vs. U.T.S. 

In defeating U.T.S. by 7 — 3, we practically cinched our group, 

and the onl) obstacle that remained was for Upper Canada to take a 

v ii nut n\ Saint Michael's, which they did. thus preventing a tie. 

U.T.S. played their best hockey of the season; this may have been due 

tu the fact that they ha<l nothing to lose and something to gain if 

feated us. They rushed untiringly, and checked with such per- 

iistenc) that for a time in the second period they had a large margin 

of the play. Spence in goal was the star of the game. He stopped 

all angles, and on several occasions he did the splits, much 

Up tin- amusement of the fans. Omitting the game that we lost to Saint 

Michael's. St. Andrew's played her worst hockey of the season. The 

team lacked spirit and tight, and it was fortunate for us that we weren't 

gainst another team in the group, or else we would have been 

put out of the running. Lough and Careless, our two substitutes, did 


the bulk of the work. They both skated at top-speed, and were r< 
for their effort- by a goal. 

Referee — Frank Sullivan. 

S.A.C. line-up as before. 

S.A.C. vs. < >SH WYA 

In the first round of the Junior O.H.A. we were scheduled to play 
( Ishawa. The game was played on a long but narrow rink, and this 
tended to make the game a close-checking one. However, n did nol 
hinder the speed of either team. and. if anything, it gave the advantage 
to our players. Our forwards skated around the (ishawa defi 
will, and gave goalkeeper Leveque a busy evening, (ishawa plainly- 
showed that they have not had much experience, and were evidently 
ill a group with minor teams. Their tour goals were well earned, and 
maybe 'they deserved more, for once they got near the net they worked 
fast; but outside of that they were a disorganized team. On the 
defensive they were very weak, and found it difficult to stop the well- 
engineered S.A.C. plays. The whole S.A.C. team did well, with 
probably Miller and Lovering outstanding. Miller scored four and 
Lovering three goals. Hunnisett turned in a stead) game in goal. He 
stopped many hard shots, and when scrambles occurred in fronl oi th> 
net he cleared very quickly. During 'the first twenty minute- tl 
was 2—1. The ( Ishawa rooter- had the notion that they were going to 
hand us a licking, hut this" notion was short-lived, for tl 
7—3 at the end of the second session; and when the end of the massacre 
came, much to the delight of the rooters, we had amas 
total of 12 goal- to their 4.

visitors; he is a fairly fast skater and lias a good shot. Whitehead, 
Carrick, Miller and Mercer wire our best. Whitehead featured in a 
numbei of brillianl rushes, which threatened the Oshawa nel at times. 
Miller, Mercer and Lovering combined throughout the game to good 
advantage. Wilson gol his first chance to get into the game when he 
relieved Hunnisett in the last period. The team didn't extend them- 
selves, ur else the score might have looked something like the Russian 
debt. [wo goals in the first, three in the second, and one in the last 
was the way the score went. Whitehead. Mercer, Miller, Lovering and

( )n Friday, February 19th, the team went to Newmarket to plaj 
them in the third round of the Junior O.H.A. Unaccustomed as our 
team were to the rink, they did mighty well to keep the score so low. 
The hoard- were springy, and when the puck was shot against them it 
would rebound very quickly. This caused us to lose the puck on many 
occasions when near their net. It seemed to he our luck to go through 
the first period scoreless. Newmarket skated rings around us, hut it was 
Hunnisett who always saved the situation. He played brilliantly, and 
thi low -core is mainly due to his hue work. In the second period 
l'errault scored on a pass from in front of the net. This did not upset 
our players, for they got right down to hard work and kept Newmarket 
on the defensive for the rest of the period. As I said before. Hunnisett 
had been playing a marvellous 'game, and as ill-luck would have it, the 
only time he took hi- eyes off the puck during the game was when 
Townsley shot from mid-ice, putting the puck in the upper corner ol 
the net. That might have been called a lucky one. Newmarket have a 
fast team and a good goalkeeper. Their victory was well earned, and 
we can afford no excuse. 

I'cnault and Townsley were outstanding for Newmarket, while 
Mfercer and Whitehead were best for S.A.C.

The return game with Newmarket was one of the fastest junior 
fixture^ seen at the Arena this year. We emerged the victors b) a score 
f 5 — 1. and the round 5 — 3. Newmarket started the game with a two- 
goal lead and a lot of confidence, but all this vanished after playing 
sixty minutes of thrilling hockey. On the forward line the visitors kept 
pace with the fastest, and Townsley, their centre man. was the fleetest 
of them all. He was the best man on the New market team. V\ 
led the way for us. 'The duel between them was the feature of the 
Came, and the Newmarket roared themselves hoarse when Townsk) 
tricked Whitehead and put the teams on even terms on the round 
midway in the second period. Whitehead, however, scoi 
and thus doubled the count on the Newmarket star. 
Whitehead teamed perfectly together, and they had a lot to do with 
Newmarket's failure to get in close for shots. ROSS Miller opened the 
scoring two minutes after the game began. I arrick had carried the 

,,,n his own defence and passed to Lovering, whose - 
stopped; but goalkeeper Corbett stumbled, and Miller scored into an 
empty net when the puck rebounded. Three minutes later Wl 
weaved his way past most of the visitors, and then cooll) drilled the 
rubber into the net. For th( od a great rush and an equally 

great shot by Whitehead put us in the lead eight minutes alter the 
opened, but that only spurred the visitors i termined 

efforts, and in one minute Townsley went around Whitehead and drove 
the puck into the n< t. I ownsley did his I 

but was checked closely. Neither nam. however, was able to 
register again, although the pace was lightning fast and the sho 
and numerous. Three minutes had elapsed in the last period when 
Mercer passed to Miller, and the latter shooting from the wii 
Corbett with a perfect drive. Newmarket had plentj of opportunities 
to score, but they couldn't pass the defence, and am si„, t s th 
headed for the net were taken care of by Hunnisett, who played his 
best game of the season I wo minutes before the game ended, 
combined with Whitehead to score the winning coal. 

Line-up the same.

McDougall made it four. BastendorfFs goals were scored within a

second was a solo effort, and for the third he took another pass from

McDougall again went around the defence to beat Hunnisett on 
Lander's pass. The sixth goal went to Lauder, and the seventh to 
Gregg. Miller was the outstanding player on our team. His two 
the first and the single counter in the last session were well 
earned. .Mercer showed great generalship all evening, and his poke 
check was so insistent that it took nearly half the game for the Greys 
to realize that they could not get away from him without a genuine 
struggle. I.ovcring. Careless and Lough fitted in well and were used 
quite often.

Referee— Harold Mitchell. 


Playing against a four -<.al lead, the team battled pluckily, but the 
smooth working combination of the speedy Owen Sound team protected 
the lead won in the first game. The score of the game was 3 — 2, but 
ill-luck followed in our footsteps when Hunnisett accidentally knocked 
the puck into the net after he had skated out to clear. Owen Sound 
got all their goals in the first period, leading when the first intermission 
arrived by 3 to 1. We scored our first goal when Mercer and Miller 
combined on a pretty rush, the latter flipping the puck into the net. 
Our other goal was the result of a brilliant rush by Lovering, who 
skated through the whole team, drew Smith out, and pushed the rubber 
into ill'' net. Owen Sound got their first goal ten minutes after the 
game began, when Randle batted in the rebound off Bastendorff's stick. 
Their last counter came after a line piece of work by Bastendorff, who. 
taking a pass from McDougall, feinted a shot along the ice, and when 
toved out to block it he flipped it by him into the net. 


"Patsy" Callighen did fine work on the defence, while his rushes were 
always dangerous. Although he did not score against his old team- 
mates, he managed to figure in four of the goals, giving thi 
Whitehead and Mercer shone for S.A.C. Mercer did not gel a goal, 
but on his night's performance he deserved two Or three. Miller and 
Lovering also played well. 
Referee— Harold Mitchell. 


Miller, "Ross" — right wing. A very popular and capable captain who 
set a fine example for his team-mates. Played exceptionally fine hockey 
in the ( »wen Sound games, being the onlj player on our team to 

Mercer, "Mucker"— centre. The steadiest check on the team. 
Worked untiringly all season, and his unselfishness in passing the puck 
made it possible for the forward line to combine so well. 

Carrick, "Ooks"— left defence. Surprised everyone by his -peed 
and ability to rush. His total number of goals might have been larger 
if his shooting had been more accurate. 

Whitehead. "Red" right defence. B) our admission we consider 
him the best defence man in the "Prep." school group. A fast and 
beautiful skater with a wicked shot, lie and Carrick teamed well on 
the defence all season. 

Lovering, "Bill" — left win-'. Shared the scoring honour- with. 

Miller. A dangerous shot and possessed of plenty of speed. Closed 
the season with a brilliant individual goal through the whol 
Sound team. 

E-Iunnisett, "Reefy"— -oak Although a little shaky in tl 
Of the season, he improved rapidl) and was an important factor m all 
our later victories. We hope to have hint with us next year. 

Careless, "Den"— sub. An ideal substitute, who played hard and 
pestered the opposing wings relenltessly. A clever stick handler. 

Lough, "Doug"— sub. Shared the centre honours with a hook check 
which was as baffling as Mercer's poke. \ brilliant stick-handler, who 
figured in some very prettj gi 

Wilson, "Hugh"— sub goal. Did not haw i mities to

showed to good advantage. The management of the team was abl) 

to D) Bl at d Lentz, to whom thank- are Aw foi their 

never-failing compel. ■ iness.

i the season the Juveniles promised to be a very 
in tlif group they were greatly weakened by the 
loss (if McLean 1. who was used as a substitute on the First Team, tints 
disqualifying him from Juvenile Hockey. McLean was a brilliant 
centre ami one of the hardest workers mi tin- tram, and be was greatly 
missed throughout theseason. The team was ably coached by Mr. 
Stone, wlui gave up much of his valuable J- time. 

Moff. Dunlap, who piloted tin- team mosl of tin- season, was elected 
Captain, and his brilliant unselfish play at left wing was a large factor 

in '.be team's SUCCeSS. 

Theifirst game of the season was with Weston, which the Juveniles 
won b) the score of 6 2. after a very bard and rough game. 

The return game with Weston was played in zero weather, and it 
was a listless affair which Weston won by the score of 2 — 1. 

[J.T.S defeated us in our next game mi our own ice. by a score of 
2 1. Fisher getting our only counter. 

\fter this I'.- the fuveniles rallied and defeated St. Michael's in a 


hard foughl struggle b) a scon of 1 -0. Smith being the outstanding 
player on our team. 

In the return game with St. Michael's we came out on the loi 
of a 5 — score. Dunlap starred in this game, playing h 
of the season. 

The final game of the season was with U.T.S., at Aura Lee, which 
we won by a score of 2—0. Banfield and Dunlap being the besl men 
on the ice. 

This put the Juveniles in second place, and as U.T.S. onlj lost oni 
game through the season, we were eliminated from the pla) o 

The following were granted colours— Dunlap II (Captain), Smith. 
Fisher, banfield, Sprott I, Horsfall II. Dennis, Hulbig, Binns, McLean I. 

Dunlap II.— "Moff," Captain, went strong tins year, and was 

always able to mix things up. His powerful shot from left wing 

was effective. 
Smith— "Tony" is a real goal-getter, and playing centre was a good 

addition to our forward hue this year. We are glad to welcome 

him to S.A.C. hockey. 
Fisher.— "Doug" always played a steady game whether at defence or 

on the forward line. 
Sprott I.— Playing defence for the most part with an occasional period 

on the forward line, "Hubert" was indispensible. 
Banfield - Hal played well at defence ever) game, and says suburban 

teams can't scare him. 
I [orsi i i II. Ross played in nearly every game and was effective with 

his right-hand shot. 
Dennis— "Harv" was a real relief player, and did much to help the team 

hold its own. 
M U law [.—George— always good at centre wa onl) with us part 

of the season, as the First Team used him. 
Hulbig— Sid, our regular goalie, wa- "there" this season, and will see 

the ( >.II. V before he is much older. 
Binns— Our sub-goalie, -hows great promise, and should be a First 

Team puck -topper another year. 

This year's Midgets were a well balanced team and under the able 
coaching of Mr. Ramsay the) improved greatl) as the season advanced. 
Each player played good hockey and gave his best througho 


season. The team, although it did not win its group, brought to the fore 
omising young players whom we hope to see on our First Team 
j n the near future. Broome was elected captain, and his fine leadership 
serve credit. 

The rirsl gai I the season was with De La Salic on our own ice. 

The score was a tie, 1-1. after 20 minutes overtime. Stronach getting

for St. Andrew's, by the score of 3 — 0. This victory tied up the group 

between St. Michael's and St. Andrew's, which teams played-oft 

;roup at the Rosedale Rink. This game we lost by a score of 

US being eliminated from the championship play-offs. 


After the group games had been played the Midgets journeyed to 
Port Hope to play a team from T.C.S., with whom they tied, the score 
being 4 — 4.

This year's Bantams, under the able coaching of Mr. Widdrington,

resulted in a scoreless tie. 

The play-off between St. Andrew's and De La Salle at Kavina for 
group honours, passed to De La Salle, who won the game 4 — 3. 

With the exception of the first game against St. Michael's B. all 
these group games were interesting contests. We finished the group, tied 
for premier honours with De La/Salle, both teams having lost but one 
game, and that to each other. 


In the play-off games we were seriously handicapped by th< h 
Gordon and Cosgrave, who were both on the sick list; the team played 
good hockey and would probably have won if they had been ai full 
strength. We played one exhibition same with T.C.S. Little Side; Lash, 
for T.C.S.. was outstanding, being very strong and speedy, ami scoring 
5 goals; apart from him the teams were very evenly matched; the final 
score was 7 — 2. with Gordon and Edmonds supplying our goals. 


Stkathv. "Ed.". Left Defence. Has proved a very good captain 
and leader this season. Very steady on the defence and his rushing 
improved immensely as the season went on. 

Gordon I, "George", Left Wing. The fastesl skater mi the

McLean IV, "Pinkie", Centre. A clever and very promising young

Edmonds. "Johnny", Righl Wing. Ver) persistenl and had the 
happy knack of being in the right place at the right time, thus scoring 
great many goals.

very well on the defence, using his body to good advantage. 

Cosgrave, "Fat" Goal. Played very well and seems to have over- 
come his nervousness in games. 

Rhynas, "Jack". Sub. An ideal substitute, being persistent ami 
watching his check carefully.

It is Friday night, at half-past two, 

The masters sleep and the boys do too ? 

Down the long, low gloomy hall 

'The rosy gas-jets rise and fall. 

On the walls, black shapes dart and flutter 

From the same gas-jets as they fume and splutter. 

And the stairs which have felt so many feet, 

Seem to grimace, and nod. and gently sleep. 

And all about is that ghostly quiet, 

Far moved from the common din and riot. 

But now a faint sound pierces the walls. 

It drifts up the stairs and down the halls. 

Like tlii' thumpity thump of knocks on a door. 

Now the thumps pause, then go on once more. 

And with it goes a rapid clatter. 

As when you are cold and your teeth madly chatter. 

And myself in a doorway press it more tight, 

For you know such sounds make one creepy at night. 

The weird sound now approaches nearer. 

And all the time becoming clearer. 

It is heading towards me, I'm sure of that; 

Mere it is now right up on the flat.

The above subject has been discussed and cussed for the lasl ten 
years without much consequence; things have finally come to a head, so 
let us consider this as a matter of vital importance.

THE < 'I. I) l',< )VS' DINNER 

Tin- annual Old Boys' Dinner was held at the College on Monday, 
Jan. 11th, when the Old Boys were the guests of the Board of 
Governors. It was a verj successful gathering, rivalling in numbers 
and enthusiasm the famous < )1<1 Boys' Reunion of 1919. 

The Prime Minister of Ontario was the guesl of honour, lie was 
introduced by the Hun. Dr. Cody, who paid high tribute to him as a 
public figure. The Hon. Mr. Ferguson delivered a very interesting and 
entertaining address, creating a very favourable impression on many 
who had not previously heard him speak. 

Dr. Macdonald's speech was, a- usual, the most interesting of the 
evening. He is in close touch with St. Andrew's Old Boys and the 
outline of their achievements during the past year, the pro-res- of the 
School and the hope- held for its future were all matter- which in- 
terest d everyone present. 

Among the other speakers were Sir Joseph k'lavelle and Mr. Percy 

Robinson- But though the speeches were excellent and the f 1 was 

excellent, no ( (Id Boj would consider them the feature- of the evening. — 
No, the great thing was the happy re-union of Andreans, the feeling of 
pride in one'- old school and love for that old school something that 
cannot be adequately expressed in word- Something that can only he 
aroused h\ a happy gathering of old St. Andrew'- boys! 

S.A.C. ' dd) B( >YS IN ll< tCKEY 
Hockey is a strenuous game, and it is quite the natural thing that 
many who have excelled in this sport during school days should - ■> k a 
less violent winter pastime on entering the business or professional 
world. St. Andrew's College has turned out many brilliant hocke) 
players and it is interesting to note how many Old Hoys are still taking 
an active part in the game. Our information, unfortunately, is very 
limited and. no doubt, there are man) Andreans playing the game, 
especially those in Western Canada and the Maritime Provinces, whom 
we have overlooked. We apologize to thru, and hop, they will write 
and tell us of their prowess in I anada's great winter sport. 

Well, to make a beginning, we naturally think of Harrj Watson. 

probably the greatest of all amateurs at the present time. It i- true that 

llarrv played verj little hocke) tin- season, hut hi- two appearances on 

for. into ice demonstrated that he had lost none of hi- former ability. 

Jack Cameron, of Olympic fame, was the Osgoode Hall goal- 

It wa- largel) due to hi- tine work in the net- that the I >sg Ie 


Hall tram made such a fine showing. On the same team we had 
Granl Gordon Cameron and Gordon are both ex-Head Prefects. 

Bruce Findlay played with the Toronto Canoe Club senior team. 

\i \ arsity Jack Carrick played mi the intermediate team, and mi one 
or two occasions, with the seniors. Don Carrick played on the junior 
team, a- did also "Sniffy" Mueller. The latter so distinguished him- 
self a- a goal-keeper that he was moved up to the intermediates. We 
exped great things of "Stuffy" next season. 

At McGill, the Junior team was coached by Gerald Reid and man- 
aged by S. I',. Wood, both S.A.C. Old Boys; while the following were 
members of their faculty team: — Joe Cameron, M. Taggart, C. Lewis 
and G. Reid. 

The Parkdale Junior team was largely an ex-St. Andrew's team, 
with Harry Watson coaching and Bruce Hurry. Fred Miller and Ross 
orming the backbone of the smartest Junior team in the city. 

"Patsy" Callighen captained the famous Owen Sound Greys. He 
has improved wonderfully during the past two years and. doubtless, will 
be an outstanding senior player next year. 

We feel sure that we have overlooked many good players hut the 
above outline will give the St. Andrew's Old Boy an idea of what his 
School ha- contributed to amateur hockey. 


i )ne daw notjlong ago, the writer received a note from our well- 
remembered friend Ah Ramsay, asking if 1 could contribute an article 
upon the subject of St. ) Andrew's College boys who had earned renown 
in the world of Golf. ( >f Such there are a number, and I much regret I 
have not the knowledge necessary, if justice, is to be done the players, 
to write an article on this subject. However. I do know that amongst 
tin- most prominent are: Hon Carrick. Charlie Greer, Jack Cameron. 
Joe Cameron, Freddie Lyon, Al Findlay and John Firstbrook. 

!' golf, mi devotion has ratherjbeen to the element known as The 
Century I 'layers. Individually and collectively the .Century Player is 

Eellow, and,g 1 fellowship it is that bold- Century together. 

One thing the Century Player requires, and of which be has a 
i knowledge, is, mathematics. Some golf players, not being 
Century Players nor yet proteges of our Uncle Ernie, have been found, 
lo be deficient. But deficient,-, statistics and experience prove, are more 
in the rank- of the "middle classes". The Century Player 
know, his game to be rather a laugh and enjoy- it; the middle class 
player seems not to consider this angle of the game. There is a fellow 


in golt who consistent^ plays in the "nineties". Vou have met him. 
tie's too good Eor Centurj but not good enough to be better than he is. 
To be oh. so brutally frank, he's the worst mathematician we have in 
golf. There was a chap playing with a friend of mine in a com- 
petition; he brought in a solid 106, my friend insisting upon the sinking 
of all putts, even though only five or six feet from the cup. A 
two after this we held a sort of Field Day. with every man on his own 
card, and the boj brought in a smart <S~. which goes to show what 
mathematics ami putting have to do with success in golf. 


The representatives from the Old Boys' Association on the Board 
of Governors are Boh (.ill of Bowanville, Ken McLaren and Gordon 
Cassels. The first two have represented the Old Boys for th< 
years. Gordon Cassels, Vice-President of the < >1<1 Boys' Association, is 
the new member on the Hoard. He well deserves the honour. In the 
Summer number of Tut: Review we hope to give a brief outline oi rh<

when you consider that the hoys have to keep up a good deal of 
Classical Chinese to be considered educated by their own countrymen.

standards, but their lab work is rather sadly behind, partly due to 
inadequate facilities, but chiefly due to an absolute lack of background

He was making a success of business life when he met with an auto- 
mobile accident in the latter part of l'L'.v For some time he was in the 
Hospital in Montreal, then he returned home only to find it necessary to 
go away for further treatment. ( >n < >ctober,20th, 1925, he called at the 
School to report a successful nasal operation, which had improved his 
general condition, leading to the expectation of restored health in due 
time. He returned to the Hospital for further treatment, and three 
days later, on October 23rd, 1923,, he passed awa) ver) suddenly. The 
shock of his accident had left his nervous system in a weakened con- 
dition and the end came with, no warning. 

Reynolds' record at St. Andrew's was an excellent one. lie made

An event which will make a strong appeal to young and old will be 
staged m the Armouries at Hamilton during the week of May 3rd, by 
the Kiwanis Club. It will be known as the "Hobby Fair", and will give 
ever} one an excellent opportunity of seeing just what the rising 
generation can do in the waj of construction and useful arts. 

I he programme being prepared will enable both hoys and girls to 
exhibit not only the various home hobbies, but will also include those 
articles which are being made by the pupils of the practical arts and 
science classes throughout the public and separate schools, as well as 
those of the collegiate institutes and technical schools. 

The Kiwanis Club feels that to encourage young people to develop 
the useful arts and crafts as a hobby is a project worthy of its interest 
and hearty support. It believes that it makes for better citizenship. 
and higher development of hand and mind. There is no profit arising 
from the fair, hut the simple furtherance of useful hobbies among the 
young people of the city. 

I line is a time when every normal hoy develops a willingness to do 
things which he has hitherto shown no desire to do and concurrently 
seems to become deaf at intervals, lie seems to have secret interests 
which keep him long hours in the attic, basement or any place where he 
can find seclusion from interruption. 

However, not everybody's hobby lasts forever. One month he may be 
worrying over the butterflies, now visiting the garden in large numbers, 
and the next may he desperately intent upon ruining dad's saw during 
the construction of a dog house, or bird cage. The wise parent, it is 
believed, will he patient throughout all these varying phases and lend 
kindly words of advice, for although the first offerings may he a hit 
rough and ready, something more useful and ornamental will come later. 

Then again, any hobby which proves rather permanent is the actual 
expression of tastes and capacities which greatly influence the hoys 
future. Through the hobby also the parent has an excellent oppor- 
tunity to find just what the child's aptitude is for the various arts and 
crafts. Also, in addition to the contract between the hoy ami family, 
there will he new contracts with other boys, with education all round. 
So these earl) hobbies are considered worth while despite the strain of 
the family purse and first aid kit. 

a very full list of entries lor boys and girls, the fair will 
have a programme of dancing, singing and athletic features to show the 
talent of the rising generation. There are classes for rabbits, guinea 


pigs, pigeons, cats, dogs and poultry. Then there arc sub-classes, so 

that a youngster ma) chut his annual in the competition for the 

dog, the smallest dog, the ugliest dog, or almosl any other disl 

which dugs may have. Art will include I awing, map of 

Canada, landscape paintings, still life, advertising posters, i 

young artist will have the option of working in various material-, such 

as Indian ink. crayon, water colour-, and oil colours. 

In collections will appear postage stamps, coins, postcards, sna] 
Mags or pennants, buttons, souvenir-. Indian relic-, etc. Everything that 
may he collected will he taken if properly arranged and mounted. 'The 
voting naturalist may exhibit his collection of wild flowers, leaves, 

u Is, seeds, -hell-, butterflies, moth-, insects, etc. The practical 

fellow who delights in making things can bring on his steam engine and 
mechanical models. The electrical department will include radio ets 
motors, batteries and transformers. 

The purpose of this "Hobby Fair" i- to assist Juveniles to develop 
useful talents, to encourage them along lines of constructive effort, and 
to provide a medium by which they may receive propel 
time spent in honest endeavour. 

The "Hobbv Fair" will he an education to all and a revelation to

Somewhere in the vicinity of the year 1600 the plaj Julius Caesar 
tten b) William Shakespeare. The subject of the play is the 
assassination of Julius Caesar. This was brought about by a group of 
conspirators under the leadership of Marcus Brutus and Cassious. 
Cassius was the cause of this conspiracy rising against Caesar. lie 
thought that he was just as able a man as Caesar and could see no 
reason wh) Caesar should become Emperor of Rome while he re- 
mained a commoner. Previous to this Caesar had been warned by a 
soothsayer to beware of the Ides of March, and this bad been preying on 
his mind. 

The conspiracy also bad its effect on the mind of Brutus. He had 
developed a habit latel) of getting up out of bed and wandering around 
Ins house worrying about the outcome of their enterprise. His wife, 
Portia, became very anxious, realizing that there was something "rotten 
in Denmark." Brutus keeps her in the dark as to what is the cause of 
his uneasiness. 

Meanwhile the wife of Caesar, whose name is Calpurnia, lias heen 
having her own troubles. She tries to persuade Caesar not to go forth, 
but he insists on going forth, and they argue back and forth. Caesar 
would not admit to bis wife that be was afraid to go to the Capitol, but 
bis own house looked very good to him that day. The conspirators had 
contemplated Caesar's staying it home from the Capitol, and parried this 
blow by sending Decius to make fun of CaesaCs weakness and so chide 
him into putting in bis appearance. He succeeded, and Caesar accom- 
panied him and the rest of the senators to the senate bouse. When he 
got there Artimedorus. just a real good fellow, tried to warn him to 
beware of the conspirators, but Caesar turned his deaf ear to him. 

When the sta.^e was all set for the assassination, one of the con- 
spirators lured Mark Antony into the smoking room, which was adjoin- 
ing the court. Casca. the villain of the conspiracy, then sidled up to 
Caesar, and while patting him on the back, congratulating him on his 
latest golf score, he buried his pen knife to the hilt in Caesar's back. 
The other conspirators, not to be outdone, quickly followed suit, and 
before the bell rang they bad Caesar groggy and hanging on to the 
ropes. The last conspirator to perforate Caesar was Brutus. This 
came as quite a surprise to the former, as he thought Brutus was 
playing on his side. The only way Caesar could retaliate was to bring 
bis slippery-elm tongue into action, and this he did with a vengeance. 
lie bellowed forth some form of slang which was heard quite a bit in 



the streets of Rome at that time, i.e., Et tu Brute," which ti 

into modem English means "So's your old man." With this last 

sarcastic retort he rolled over and passed out of the picture with a 

victorious smile on his countenance. The conspirators were all so angrj 

that they stood and ground their teeth to dust, simply be 

had had the last word. By the time they had thought of a suitable 

reply he was beyond listening to them. 

The conspirator- stabbed Caesar thirty-two times in all, equalling 
the world's record for holes-in-one held by Bobby Jones of < (shkosh. 
If they had stabbed him twenty-five times more they might have com 
pared favourably with Mr. Heinz's fifty-seven different kinds of pickles. 
The winner of this argument seems to have been the smooth-aver who 
proved that he was a good guesser. 


Hennessey . 


\t'u-r driving all day over a hot, dust) road, we began to look for 
a suitable place to camp for tin- night. At about four o'clock we came 
upon a sign at the side of the mad. which informed us that Cameron 
as a few miles ahead. This sounded inviting, so we hurried on, 
eager to find a suitable camp site before dark. 'The first glimpse of the 
lake was hut a small patch of blue water thai flickered in the distance, 
!• lui.M the tall tree-, and then was gone. Suddenly, as we rounded 
a curve in the mad. we dashed out onto a high ledge, and there was the 
lake before us, a blue expanse of water about two miles in length and a 
mile long, bordered on all side- by rugged mountains. Looking down 
from this dizzy height, one could see the water lapping against its 
rocky wall, and very green on account of it- extreme depth. In the 
distance, the water was blue, and glittering here and there with the 
sun'.- reflected rays. 

We drove on a little way. and soon found a very pleasant camp site. 
sheltered from the dust of the road, and right beside the lake. For the 
next hour everyone was busy pitching camp, the men in the part) setting 
up tent-, and the women cooking supper. By the time supper was over 
and everything cleaned up, it was already growing dusk. We sat down 
by the water's edge, and, as we were accustomed to do. began singing 
old-time -i ingS. 

The miii had already sunk below the trees behind us. Before long 
our singing stopped, and all fell silent, contemplating on the wondrous 
glprii of nature. The only sign of man's work was the level line of 
a railroad bed along the side of the opposite mountain, far across the 
lake. The reddened glory of the sunset was reflected on the mountain 
aero-- from us. Slowly the shadow crept up the side of the mountain. 
Before long it was approaching the top; only the -now-clad peak was 
left, glowing in the sun's last rays. Everyone was silent, watching and 
waiting for the glimmering light to disappear; everything was forgotten 
hut the beauty of the scene. 

Suddenly we were startled by the deep-toned whistle of a train. 
Away in the distance, across the lake, it crawled slowly into view. It 
wa- scarcely visible in the dull twilight. Silently it crept along, an 
indistinct grey streak, trailing behind it a white line of smoke, which 
gradually softened and mingled with the twilight. When it came directly 
opposite us the lights of the cars flashed on. These lights seemed to 
bear a strange feeling of warmth and comfort, compared with the dull 


atmosphere that surrounded us. Stealthil) the lights glided on, until, 
one l>v one, they blinked and then disappeared from sight. 

V darkness settled down upon us, the spell which had been 
broken by this intruder slowly returned. The mountain before us, which 
a short time before had been basking in the glorious colour- oi the 
sunset, was now but a black rugged pile showing it- rough outline 
against the darkening sky. The great red star. Antares, rose up from 
behind the mountain and began its slow journey across the sky. casting 
across the lake a magic path of sparkling light. 

Again our thoughts were interrupted by the whistle of the distant 
train. It sounded very harsh, and seemed to lie intruding on the perfeel 
harmony of nature. 

Four years have passed since I spent the night by the side of 
Cameron Lake, and during that time 1 have often reflected on how 1 
was impressed by this comparison between the mighty works of man 
and the mightier work- of < lod.

A successful hockey season is scarcely over, yet do we prepare 
ourselves for other battles to conn-, on different grounds. Even in the 
midst of winter the well-oiled hats are removed from their resting 
places, the pads are whitened, and a bright new ball, red as an apple, 
makes its appearance. The mat is laid, the nets are put up, and soon 
the resoundingc crack of leather against seasoned wood is heard coining 
from the gym. It is during these dark winter days, so unlike cricket 
weather, that many a cricketer is made. Hence all those who are 
looking forward to the honour of wearing First team blazers have been 
turning out to practice in the gym every afternoon, so that by spring 
none of the glorious summer afternoons will have to be wasted in the 
little details that count so much, and yet may be learned inside as well 
as out. But we will be ready to begin a season of steady hard practice, 
which we hope will end in success. 


May it he known, though it no doubt already is, that Charles 
Brandon Booth is an ardent worker in the Big Brother and Sister 

Could anyone listen to him as we did one eventful morning, they 
would readily understand why he is called an ardent worker. For half 
an hour or more he carried us along with him from one scene to 
anothei making us experience his trials and sorrows, bis hopes and joys, 
and finally driving home to us the fact that we should think of others. 
forget our own hard luck' and earnestly try to help those in less fortunate 
circumstances than ourselves. It was some time before we recovered 
from Mi. Booth's fiery address, for the enthusiasm with which he was 
inspired was of that rare variety which is very contagious and has a 
lingering effect.

Badminton as described b) one who saw it for the first time and 
whose descriptive powers are somewhat on a scale with my own, "is a 
game played with funny little tennis rackets, a funny little ball with 
feathers on the end of winch dues Eunny things when you hit it. and a 
funny sort of fish-net." And verily it is a funny game. This new fad 
has captured the hearts of the sporting fans, forever seeking something 
different in the wa\ of excitement and pleasure. What ordinary person, 
may we ask, desires to take the fiercest of tennis strokes imaginable at 
a small, feather-encrested cork only to have it sail leisurely through the 
air at the pace usually seen in a slow-motion camera. Such is Bad- 
minton. The little shuttlecock, as it is called, nevei seems to worry 
over the strength of the contestants, but travels along always serenel) 
on its way. 

Despite this, nevertheless, it is no ladies game. The shuttlecock 
may travel slowly, still it has an irritating manner of dropping languidlj 
to the ground, just out of reach of your racket. Which vulgar trick 
keeps you hopping at top .-peed all through the game. Thus one may 
see a slight reason whj one or two of the club members arise 
or live-thirty in the morning and are out again at the first tinkle ol 
the bell announcing the close of Study to indulge in their recent fad. 


For reasons, not to be too closely looked into, fencing alwai 
to have about it a romantic thrilling atmosphere. Probabl) becau 
it we ma) believe all that has been handed down to us, our ancient 
. about whom so many picturesque love tales arc woven, were 
such gentlemen and made so much to do over chivalry that for the least 
insult they must have the satisfaction of sticking the insulting person 
through like a pig or die a martyr to their cause. The real cause of these 
duels could, however, with rare exception- he traced back to the u-ual 
cause of all man's troubles, a beautiful and adorable woman: hence the 
romantic atmosphere. 

So chivalry has not been hud in its grave as yet. Foi the fencing 

class, both senior and junior, runs up into g 11) double figun - Som< 

are 50 keen, in fact, that the school was able to enter a team in 
the Ontario Amateur Chompionships, winch, despite its tender age 
and lack of experience, made .1 ver) creditable showing. But a 
all these things, fencing is a highly instructive -port, tor in no other 
competition is the mind required 1- 1- - alert and act.- 
advantage of the slightest opening, and all the senses of the bo< 
co-operate with each other. 


R \l)IO 
11,,. Old Boys' Association, always so thoughtful and considerate of 
others, on recalling to mind some of the long dreary evenings which 
they spent at the school, generously presented the school with a large 
five-tube radio set equipped with a loud speaker. 

No longer now do we fear those long dreaded words of the masters, 
-[ am afraid that 1 -hall have to gate you", nor arc the masters able 
to silently exult over the fact that they have spoiled one of our precious 
Saturdays. Now on that eventful day which follows every Friday, 
instead of wearing out our Sunday suits a day ahead of time, spending 
a quarter on car tickets, and the rest of our allowance on one of the 
popular shows, such as Shea's, the Royal Alex., the Red Mill and other 
places of amusement and recreation, we don our pyjamas, dressing 
-owns and slippers, settle down in a large, comfortable easy chair. (1 
sa) comfortable because all easy chairs are not comfortable) turn a 
few dials, and enjoy anything from hymns and classical operas to jazz 
orchestras and minstrel shows, and never a care as to whether out- 
leave will he up before the programme is ended. So at last the masters 
i, ,,i our mercy, racking their brains to invent some new punishment 
by which they may cast a shadow over our bright young lives. This 
must be done soon though, for another year will see us at Aurora, where 
all is sun to everlastingly bright. And for this we one and all 

give our heartfelt thanks to the Old Boys' Association.

\s usual, everyone left the cleaning of spats, belts and the shining 
of buttons till the last possible moment, thus causing the customary riot 
of confusion two or three hours before the dance. 

I )n, boy is silently engaged in whitewashing a belt, another is de- 
manding in eloquent language, of a rather low type, "Why such things 
as spats were invented, and if so. why put buttons on them"? While a 
fellow-sufferer also joins in with a few deep, dark, dirty, disgusting 
words regarding brass buttons in general. Each excited soul is keyed 
up to a high state of nervousness, rushing around shouting for Brasso 
or .Whitening; asking "What this is for?" "How does this go on?" 
'What do you wear under your kilts"? and lamenting the raggedness 
and misfit of their tunic, yet regarding that of a more fortunate 
individual with a look of admiration which leaves no doubt as to what 
he would do should the opportunity present itself, be it his best friend 
,.r no. Gradually, however, things quieten down a hit. You take a last 


proud look in the mirror and think how lucky she is. Mso because 

you arc quite human you feel a little touch nf pity for the hit;, strong- 
minded men who. for various reasons of their own. ami maybe someone 
else, have decided not to indulge in such effeminite pleasures and are 
now standing around awkwardly, ill at ease, with a longing look in their 
eyes 1 laving moved an unruly hair over a sixteenth "t" an inch, SO 
that it will he in it> proper place, you rush down to a taxi, which has 
actually arrived on time, or more probably pace anxiously up and down 
the hall waiting for one that does not turn up for an hour or so. Thus 
are we forever primping and preening, making fools and jacl 
ourselves, and taking the odd years .iff our lives with worry, all for the 
sake of -iime comely damsel, who cares not in tin least what may 
happen to us. provided that she may have the pleasure of passing a few 
cattv remarks about some of her own sex ami ear, ore males 

t.i become her ardent admirer-. But, enough of the cynical. Let us 
nil to the dance. 

A brief period, during which you tried in vain to keep up a cheerful 
conversation whilst tensely watching the cab meter leisurely chalk up 
the accumulated amount n\ two or three week-' savings, and tl 
are listening t«i the pleasing music of a jazz orchestra, mingled with 
the sweeter sound of your own name as you are warml) received by 
Dr. and Mrs. Macdonald and the officers. Not knowing what dance it 
is. you gently encircle the waist (if your partner and move off to do the 
light fantastic according to your best form. Later you discover that

"Belle of the Ball." As dance follows dance. Mm discover that woman 
ha- wonderful quality, persistency. For each one, 
homeliest to the most beautiful, insist on your answering such questions 
a- "Are you an (.nicer"? "Who is the captain"? "What are all the 
rugby hall- fur"? \nd lastly, jusl to show hov. much they think of 
you, "Do \uu have to wear tlm-c uniforms"? i)h! wtv 
a penalty of death for murder? Still, the time flies fast, and soon you 
are in the midst of the most enjoyable part of the dance, namely, supper. 
Half the evening have Mm been trying to quell that rising hunger with 
-wed. cool punch, though all in vain. Now. with, tin i

and discover that your partner at the time i- "The "lie and only one". 
and that you could dance with her forever and aye. Then i 
Luckv Number Dane, tin short, unfinished iusic, the drawl-

on the floor become fewer and fewer, till but two arc left ( if these, 
whether by fate or design, one is a master who graciously retires in 
Eavoui "i Youth: Who, having performed a solo dance, is presented 
with a reward by Dr. and Mrs. Macdonald. All too soon now the lights 
arc dimmed, the sentimental notes of a waltz drift through the hall, 
silencing the light laughter of youth by the realization that in a few 
minutes an event long-looked-forward to with pleasure and anticipation 
will come to a close. So they dance on in a sort of mutual silence. 
Still an end must come to all things, and the last soft, pleading notes 
of the waltz have barely ceased to reverberate when the Stirring chords 
of God Save the King brings everyone out of their dreams to attention 
and thus ends a highly successful dance, though it would certainly never 
have been so had it not been for the great kindness and work of Mrs. 
Macdonald and Mrs. Montgomery, to whom we wish to extend our 
sincere thanks. W. C. K. 

Bright eyes, smiling faces, big black eyes, swollen lips, with oo 
ally a missing tooth and an injured tin noses, bruised cheeks, 
and skinned elbows and knees are the vogue during and for some time 
after the Assault at Ann,. Yet all these do we bear cheerful 
grin awkwardly at the light jests of our friends, simpl) because, for 
some reason or other, there is a fsacinating thr.U in poking youi fist 
in someone else's face. Also it is a most satisfactorj method oi 
relieving one's pent up emotions. Whether you are in a Mate ol chol. i 
dee., depression or exuberant joy, you have a desire to hn something, 
and the something which inevitably gives you th. action .s 

another person's face. So, ... box,.,,, as both parties usually feel more 
content and friendly after trying earnestl) to kill each other ,., the 
allotted t i m e of mx or nine minutes, though seldom doing much real 
damage, why lit is a good thing to let our real emotions have a little outing 
once in a while, especially since a whole week is set apart for that 
purpose. Consequent^ we have had our week of reverting back to

As the old proverb goes, "One man's pleasure is another 
sorrow"; hence the success of the Hocke) team, together with the Cadet 
Corps dance and the Assault at \rm>. robbed u 
our Friday night Lits. The meetings, though Eew, however, w« 
more enjoyable by the fact that we had plenty of material and only a 
short time in which to make use of it. 

At the one and onlj open meeting of the Literary Society held tins 
year we enjoyed a very interesting lecture, illustrated with 
"Old Toronto", given by Mr. T. A. Reid of the Univei it) of ["or 

Athletic Board. At some of the other meetings one or tvv

"Rusty" Parker also contributed a pl( tig bj showing amusing 

moving pictures of the First Team rugby games, and concluding with 
a Felix Corned) to the meat pleasure of the Lower School, and without 
doub1 a few ,„- the Qpper School. Vmong our coming musicians who 
entertained us quite frequently with all the latest jazz hits were: Kent. 
Bremner Sprott, Fisher and Browne; nor must we forgel Sid Hulbig, 
the energetic pounder of the Xylophones; or Mr. Widdnngton, who on 

,-are occasions, which we seldom forget, induced one or ft his 

tances from the Cons, of Music to play and sing for us. 
\nd lasl though not least, we come to the Lower School night, winch 
is vet to be- but since we know from experience that it will b. 
the best nights, we are looking forward to it with nothing but . 



(After a long wa 


There was a sound of revelry by night: 

["he senior dormitory was raising cain: 
The master had been round, turned out the light, 

\ml 'twould be long before he came again. 
A thousand tongues wagged happily (at least 
i It sounded like that number, if not more!) 

\inl all went merry as a marriage feast. 
And feet went swiftly scampering mi the floor. 
But hush! hush! a loud creak sounds near the passage door 

Did ye not bear it? — no; 'twas but the wind, 
( >r Macinerny going on his round; 
( In with the noise! let talk be unrefined. 
I el each lightheartedly bis neighbour pound. 
And be in turn rise up and 'sock him good'. 
But bark! that heavy sound! You beard it, Ted? 
\ sound of feet that tread on creaking wood? 
lie must have beard each blessed word we said! 
Helii! I lei])! it is— it is— tbe master's stealthy tread! 

Ab! then and there was hurrying to and fro, 

\nd stubbing toes, and squealings of distress. 
And voices hushed which, little time ago, 
Shouted with joy at their own manliness; 

\nd there were sudden snorings such as rend 

I'lie atmosphere in such emergencies, 
And simulated slumber, to tbe end 
That whosoever looks their slumber sees, 
lint oh! 'twas all in vain — that whiskered, time-worn wheeze!

him a nice new. big marble. Mr. Widdrington collected a group of boys

Far out in the great open spaces where a man's a man, where the

resounding canyons resound to the lonely pines. It doesn't make much

atmosphere, we may proceed 

Forty unbroken miles of continuous animation stretched across the 
barren sands, forty miles of humanity and covered wagons jogged along

Little groups of friends chatted in the on-coming dusk, 
es blended in the old favourite songs, the wind whistled 
through the canvas of the waggons, when suddenl) there was heard a 
shrill cry from the West, echoed by a hundred lips. The waggons were 
hauled into a formidable circle; men roared commands, the women 
hurried into the uncertain shelter which the waggons themselves afforded, 
across che sands. of the desert the Indian- rushed in a countless horde, 
shrieking their blood-thirsty cries and flourishing aloft their rough 
weapon^. A dismal wail arose from the trapped whites, their muskets 
cracked in the evening air, bullets whizzed through the em 
splintering their way past the carts, and alas, to often reaching their fatal 

marks. . . . "My son. I'm done for", gasped a i r woman staggering 

to,, late into the protection of an old rum barrel, "'rake this ring and

••I'll never forget you mother, dear, hut you must not leave me SO soon

"You'd better go home and wash dishes if you can't die better than that", 
the director roared. "You ain't got no more feeling than a -tone", and
